So I've kept pet fish (non edible) for several years and use a dewormer called Prazipro, works great.. Now I'm prepping to keep tilapia as a food fish and was curious what others use as a dewormer medicine?  Side question: how much of this dewomer medicine do you use per gallon (or per pound of fish)?

Hi AA

Raising food fish is a bit different than pet fish.

So IMO prevention by using BMP (best management practise) should ensure that you avoid and don't need to treat the fish.

I would kull and start over rather than medicate the fish (but thats me)

Thank you for the reply.  I've not kept food fish before, even tank bred fish like goldfish and betta can have worms, so I treat with prazi pro then aq salt during 1 month quarantine of new pet fish.
